Planned Giving

A gift is “planned” to the extent that the donor purposefully integrates a charitable gift into the donor’s overall financial, tax, and estate planning. A planned gift enables a donor to make a positive financial difference for the donor while also making an important gift to the Technical College of the Lowcountry. Planned gifts are legacy gifts that not only benefit the College today but also future generations of students.

Planned gifts can be made using many different kinds of assets. Most planned gifts are made with cash or appreciated marketable securities. However, depending on the donor’s particular circumstances, gifts are often made using qualified retirement account assets, real estate, insurance policies, and even artwork or business interests.
